Clinical pharmacists work as part of the general practice team to improve value and outcomes from medicines and consult with and treat patients directly. This includes providing extra help to manage long-term conditions, advice for those on multiple medicines and better access to health checks. The role is pivotal to improving the quality of care and ensuring patient safety.
Having clinical pharmacists in GP practices means GPs can focus their skills where they are most needed, for example on diagnosing and treating patients with more complex conditions. This helps GPs manage the demands on their time.
